The Nebraska Cornhuskers got some very good news this week when the softball team landed Oklahoma Sooners transfer Jordy Bahl and fans are excited.
One of the best players in college softball set the internet on fire earlier this week when she announced that she was leaving Oklahoma. In the announcement tweet, Bahl said she was coming home, which led many to believe she was coming to the Nebraska Cornhuskers. On Thursday she made it official.
The Bahl’s arrival in Lincoln has certainly got people fired up. There’s been a renewed interest in Nebraska softball. In fact, Sports Nightly reported on Thursday evening that when Bahl officially announced she was a Husker, 800 softball tickets were sold almost immediately.
Considering that the softball park holds 2,400 per game, it appears that there are going to be some packed houses when the softball season starts up again.
